Ebbott starts July 16.
He succeeds Rick Thomas, who recently moved to CBSRadio/NY to program Top40 WNOW 92.3 FM.
Ebbott returns to LA after programming Top40 CKFM 99.9 FM in Toronto. Previously, Ebbott spent almost seven years with CBS Radio/LA -- as OM of KCBS-FM he was instrumental in the station's flip from Arrow 93 to Adult Hits 93.1 Jack FM, and he was also involved in the launch of Top 40 KAMP 97.1 FM Amp Radio in 2009. Ebbott's previous programming stops include the former WMWX/Philadelphia and KZON/Phoenix, plus he served as APD/MD of the former KYSR 98.7 FM Star 98.7/LA, and as Marketing Director of KFI 640 AM.
“While we talked to many talented candidates, CHRIS’ track record of success with the Classic Hits format, success in developing on-air talent and past history with our cluster made him an excellent choice," CBS Radio/LA SVP/Market Manager Dan Kearney said.
"I fully expect K-EARTH to continue to grow under Chris’ leadership and vision."
